1:01 pm
and this targeting both the united states and our neighbor to the north. and tamerlan tsarnaev may be dead bus his wife is alive and well, and apparently federal officials are itching to talk to her. she claims she had no idea what her husband was up to. and bells ringing across boston to mark the exact time of those twin bombings a week ago. the president also calling for a moment of silence, along with traders on the usually loud new york stock exchange. in a moment we'll talk to the lead prosecutor in the oklahoma bombing case. first, fox coverage of the other event quickly unfolding, including mike tobin in boston with the latest on the charges and james rosen on the terror plot that officials say was just thwarted. james first to you on this canadian-u.s. thing. what was the plan? >> neil, good afternoon. canadian officials say this investigation code name project smooth, and conducted jointly by
1:02 pm
police intelligence, even private sector individuals, began in august of 2012 and climaxed today in the arrest and charging of two men. one age 30, and one age 35. residents respectively of montreal and toronto. these men stand formally accused with terrorist related charges, specifically of attempting to carry out what the royal canadian mounted police call an al i'd-supported attack on a via passenger train. the plot sources say was to blow up a bridge in the toronto area when a commuter train from the united states was traveling over it. officials say the two men wanted to make a big statement with a significant economic impact. u.s. sources tell fox news the two defends were in communication with people in the united states and overseas. they, quote-unquote, took steps to advance the plot and carefully watched trains. however the royal canadian mounted police say the plot was detected early on and canadian
1:03 pm
citizens never faced a threat. the defendants will appear for bail hearings tomorrow. >> neil: no link to what happened in boston,. >> correct. >> neil: thank you very much. now to mike tobin in boston, and the charges filed against suspect number two. mike? >> what was interesting, we found now from the criminal complaint is that they indeed -- i.d.ded. the throughout the this and i.d.ded themselves on security video not sow much for what they did but what hedo. dzhokar tsarnaev did not react with surprise when the initial bombs went off. he was standing with a crowd when the first bomb went off, and virtually every head turns towards the finish line, and apparent bewilderment and alarm. bomber two, dzhokar tsarnaev, virtually alone at the restaurant, appears calm. he glances east and then calmly
1:04 pm
but deliberately wrappedly heads to the west and ten seconds later the second bomb goes off. also what we see from the criminal complaint is that they identified themselves on the night of that gun battle and car chase. that coming from the carjacking victim, who tells police officers that one of the men apparently tamerlan, opened the door to his car, pointed a gun at him and said, did you hear about the boston bombings? i did that. he showed him the gun he was carrying was loaded and said, i'm serious. the court documents detail the scent gun battle. the homemade bombs being thrown out of the car and also talk about the wounds dzhokar had when he surrendered. gunshot wounds to his head, neck, legs, hand. he is charged with using a weapon of mass destruction, resulting in death. upon cop visitation the charges he is now d conviction the
1:05 pm
courages accommodate the death penalty. >> neil: former u.s. attorney, led the prosecution of the oklahoma city bomber, timothy mcvey. authorities, as you know, are saying this does not seem to be part of a wider conspiracy. from what you have seen and heard, do you agree? >> well, i don't think the federal authorities are saying that. i think some state officials said that. but i actually think the federal authorities are looking very carefully at whether or not this is a more expansive conspiracy or not. one of the things we did at great length and spent quite a bit of effort in the mcvey case, was to find out exactly that. i'm very confident that that's what the fbi and the u.s. attorney's office, department of justice, are doing right now, tracing back everything these people dade to see whether or not there was anybody else involved. >> neil: do you think that,
1:06 pm
given the nature of the attack, and the crudeness of the attack, that two young guys could have pulled this off on their own? >> definitely. definitely could have. i was thinking today, as i was reading the account in the complaint, that the been involved here was much more simplistic than the one used in oklahoma city. the components were more easily obtained. the bomb structure was simpler. this could easily be done by just two people. that doesn't mean it was. >> neil: i think smart guys like you remind us that anyone can attempt to kill you, whether homegrown or not, is a threat, and a problem. but, now, it raises another issue as to whether we have something bigger going on here that might be all home grown here, and that these are either citizens by birth or they become americans through visas're citizenship, and that they're all over the place, and they're
1:07 pm
angry. what too you think -- what do you think? >> that's unfortunate but as you just heard in the canadian situation, the united states is not the same place it was unfortunately pre-9/11 and the government does a very aggressive job protecting us. >> neil: i was thinking of this, and then the latest press conference in canada, and we had been so focused on keeping our airports safe, our planes safe, going through inordinately long security lines and the like, because that is where we felt the next terror attack could be, and a lot of us followed the threat, have been in that area. are we focusing on the wrong targets? do we have to expand out? what? >> well, i think that what we have seen among the international terrorists is a desire to have a big impact. they don't want to shoot off
1:08 pm
bombs that are smaller magnitude, although look at how horrible this was. they want to have major impact, like taking down a train or the like. so i think it does make watch our borders, exactly at we're doing. if we start to see more of a tendency for these kinds of maller level ied type attacks, the government will have to refocus. i would add that local law enforcement and responders are very focused on this kind of thing, though. we've got systems in a lot of major cities where the security cameras used for traffic, for example, can also be used to protect them. >> while they're giving us speeding tickets -- >> right. >> neil: scott, thank you very much. 19-year-old dzhokar tsarnaev has reportedly addressed some questions from authorities who have visited him at hit -- his
1:09 pm
hospital room in boston. we don't know for sure or how he conveyed it, but we do know the government does not think they were part of a grander conspiracy. but how shoe can they be and what if anything has suspect number two already revealed that makes them so sure? let's ask former fbi profiler mary ellen o'toole. what do you think? what could he be signaling if he signals anything that could make at least the local authorities suspect it's just the two brothers? >> well, during the interview, as much as he is providing information, he could be explaining that it was just the two of them, that they did it on their open. i suspect, too, that what they're asking is, what are the dynamics between him and his brother. and those dynamics are important because investigators are
1:10 pm
looking for -- out of at least the two, who is the leader, who called the shots, who made the decisions? who put together the devices and decided on when and where they would place them? so, investigators are doing almost multitasking in order to distract those -- can tract those kind of ex- >> ed appear the younger brother put the more devastating bomb in place. so, is it your sense that he was following orders from his brother? that he was just following the leader and not a leader himself? >> it has to be considered he is 19 and his brother is ol'er and he is following his brother's direction and that certainly has to be considered from this perspective. number one, is he a 19-year-old who is so callous and without
1:11 pm
empathy that he participated in this horrible bombing, or is he a 19-year-old who is immature and makes poor decisions, is easily led, and, therefore, was more manipulated by his brother? and those two possibilities will be eventually resolved by investigators because they're very important. >> neil: not entirely innocent if charges are true he ran over his brother when he left that night after the shootout. >> no. everything has to fit together. and the fact that he ran over his brother, was that -- they'll look at that and say was that intentional? was that more out of trying to get away herredly? it's not to take the younger bomber off the hook. at it really designed to underwhat those dynamics were, and how they were carried out so successfully. >> mary el help, thank you very-very much. >> you're welcome. >> neil: don't like waiting on

airport security lines? starting today, deal with it. the white house says, get used to it. he lines, the waits, the patups. frustrated? you've just been success -- sequestration. >> did a group pile the gang of eight in washington? >> i say that particularly to those who are pointing to what happened in boston as a, i would say, excuse for not doing a bill or disease laying it many month0s a year. >> never said that. >> i didn't say that. >> former senator jimmy demint isn't buying it and he is here and only here to discuss that.

the clash over immigration reform was heating up, former senator and heritage foundation president, joins me on the phone. the view was, senator, that the latest problems that have come up out of box are going to delay it or used as an excuse to delay reform. you argue that shouldn't be the reason. the plan itself should be the reason. explain. >> it's bad enough as it is, the cost, and just the fact that you cannot trust the congress or the president to keep their promises on the part of this bill that would actually fix our immigration system. so, what we're insisting on at heritage is let's look at the cost. our numbers will be ready by next week. we've done an exhaustive study with a lot of scholars and it's a significant cost at a time when our debt and deficit are taking us over the cliff. >> neil: is it your sense, senator, that this is falling
1:17 pm
apart? i don't know whether related to boston or not. but is this following on its own weight? >> temporary trying to rush it through in a hurry, and they -- today before anyone opposed to the bill had a chance to be a part of that, and now they want to rush through markup. that means they do the amendments in committee. don't know if it's falling apart or not, burt it should -- but it should. they want this to go through before americans know what is really in it. >> neil: let's say it is falling apart and the gang of eight, whoever they are -- republicans and democrats who cobbled together what they say was 0 nonamnesty immigration reform. you say, good riddance, rip up and start from scratch. because they're saying this is the closest we have ever come or ill will if come. >> we shouldn't do the am necessary city first. that's the problem because we
1:18 pm
cannot trust the congress to create a workable plan. so the worst thing we can do right now is say, okay, those who are here illegally, you're legal, you got to pass the citizen -- path to citizenship and then trust us to do the rest. there's some good things in this bill that everyone should agree on that we could pull out and vote on, on a step-by-step way so americans know what we're doing and who we're going visas to toe and what are we doing on our borders. the way this bill works, the same thing we had in 2007. people get almost immediate legal status and then we have to hope that the president and congress actually carry through on fixing our immigration system. >> neil: you doubt that the enforcement part will be realized. that republicans risk being hood winked like it was charged reagan was when he offer a investigation of this in 1986. >> ronald reagan said that's the
1:19 pm
biggest mistake he made. but it makes no sense to say, we're going to give everyone legal status, and then get around to fixing the immigration system later. it's very costly. and there are a lot of other dangers related to the immigration system we need to fix. but holding that hostage is a political ploy and we should not fall for it. >> jimmy demint, good seeing you again -- or hearing you. neil nursing school you think this blame everything on success -- sequestration will fly? how about trying to fly today. it's the reason why the white house said you waited a very long time to flow at all. are you buying it in are they just winging it? ♪ [ lighter flicking ] [ male announcer ] you've reached the age where giving up isn't who you are. ♪ this is the age of knowing how to make things happen.

because of alert citizens. some have been fbi sting plot. the federal reserve bank, we talk about that. so they continue to come at us, and various shapes and forms. we have had even the year before that we had bombs being sent in the form of ink cartridges. so it this will be continuing for the future. >> neil: what makes the boston case stand out is it was not your usual terrorist attack we expect in the united states so that's created fears about, are we safe? are we safe at parades? safe pretty much anywhere people gather? the folks at macy's and elsewhere, the parades, they're looking at how everything is put out in the security for those events. >> sure, and actually i know, we were working with clients who

understand they have suspicions, seems weird. what do you do? >> probably couldn't do anything at that point but there was a fail that existed on him after that initial interview and after that foreign government had called our attention to him. in the boston area where he was living. then the situation comes home because then he goes to russia january last year, stays six months. we know during athlete time he went into chechneya and possibly met with one of the top islamic terrorists who since dodd in a shootout with russian police, about met with him six times in a mosque. so as recently then as six months ago, november of last year, once again, you had russian intelligence calling the fbi's attention to this guy, saying, here's what we suspect. the story has just gotten a lot murkier, and possibly a lot more dangerous. keep your eye on this guy. tell us what you know about him. and the fbi never responded. so there were a lot of serious

missed opportunities here. >> neil: as there were before 9/11. >> absolutely. >> neil: never learn. we do catch on. we have to be 100%. the bad guys only once. >> you can argue that prior to 9/11 we didn't have the track record or understanding. now there is no excuse. >> neil: all right. thank you. very, very much. so much more we're going to find out, and i don't think we've even scratched the surface. meanwhile, the inflict terror, leave us terrified, and seems to forever terrorist. why is so it hard to simply call them terrorists? why are we playing semantics with lunacy? but we can still help you see your big picture. with the fidelity guided portfolio summary, you choose which accounts to track and use fidelity's analytics to spot trends, gain insights, and figure out what you want to do next.

all in one place. i'm meredith stoddard and i helped create the fidelity guided portfolio summary. it's one more innovative reason serious investors are choosing fidelity. now get 200 free trades when you open an account. peoi go to angie's listt for to gauge whether or not the projects will be done in a timely fashion and within budget. angie's list members can tell you which provider is the best in town. you'll find reviews on everything from home repair to healthcare. now that we're expecting, i like the fact that i can go onto angie's list and look for pediatricians. the service providers that i've found on angie's list actually have blown me away. join today and find out why over 1 million members count on angie's list. angie's list -- reviews you can trust. but i wondered what a customer thought? describe the first me you met. you brought the flex in... as soon as i met fiona and i was describing the problem we were having with our rear brakes, she immediately triaged the situation, knew exactly what was wrong with it, the car was diagnosed properly, it was fixed correctly
1:55 pm
i have confidence knowing that if i take to ford it's going to be done correctly with the right parts and the right people. get a free brake inspection and brake pads installed for just 49.95 after rebates when you use the ford service credit card. did you tell him to say all of that? no, he's right though...

>> like you, i never understood the mind 70 a terrorist orie luck tent to use the word terrorist. it is like my doctor when he tries to say a nice way of saying i'm too fat. neil, you could afford to lose a couple pounds. i know he is thinking more like a couple of hundred. but that is human nature. to air on the side of nice. we are doing so with loon gnaw particulars who are not so nice. don't get me wrong. i am the last to jump to conclusions and i commend the president when this boston tragedy hit apartmently pointing out it was an act of terror. i thought he had great restraint. it is not easy being consoler
1:58 pm
in chief. president obama has had to play that role one too many times. he does it well. what disturbs me is our collective reluctance to take on the disturbed whether homegrown or not. when you kill innocent people are you a terrorist. you terrorize. you are terrifying. i think terrorist is a leap too few take, especially in the media, because too many find the word terrorist too much to take. i understand the fear that we do not want to paint whole peoples with the same brush, but i do find it a little odd we have no such trouble painting the well to do with the whole fat cat brush or those who question climate change with the whole ignorant fringe brush. that's another brush. that's another issue. here is my issue, when you call someone a terrorist, you are not saying they are al-qaeda or chechen or basque separatist or any separatist. you say thought who kill
1:59 pm
innocent civilians automatically makes them terrorists. we are good people. we are a very good people. we are trying to be nice and diplomatic, but we are dealing with savages who would sooner see us nice and dead. we are trying too hard. and they are trying just as hard to make sure we keep trying to be nice. meanwhile tonight at 8:00 p.m. on fbn, he filibustered for 12 hours over drones and an administration he said was invading our privacy to do god thoughs what. god knows what. now we had an act of terror and one supposedly stopped north of our border. what does ron paul say now? no time to filibuster. the senator is with me and only me on fbn. you don't get it? >> demand it.
